Chimera, a conference organized by Synapse Art Initiatives, brought together individuals from ten countries in a spirit of speculation and pragmatism. They were invited for their significance in developing different, and perhaps more pertinent ways of thinking about the nature and role of art at this time, and its relation to cultural and societal change in the future.

The vitality and optimism of newer areas of practice was celebrated,
demonstrated and scrutinised in a programme of conversations, live art
events, research projects and social exchanges.

Artists from Australia, Austria, Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, Korea,
Germany, Northern Ireland and the United States of America, were hosted by

Synapse at the Goethe-Institut Sydney, The University of NSW, Parliament House and at other sites around the city, from the 22nd to the26th of February
